I used to always prefer Jeff, but after hearing more of Tim, that has changed.

I hear more pain and melancholy in Tim's voice than any other rock singer I've ever heard. Elvis included.

If there was a greatest rock vocalists list based only on originality and skill, he'd be #1, imo.

I also hear as much joy and vibrancy from him in some songs. Case in point, peanut man.....

Peanut Man is weird but yeah I see what you mean.
But nobody does 'sad melodies' like he does.

Valentine Melody turned me into a blubbering baby. That song totally fucked me up, I almost cant even listen to it. So heart-breaking.

Like Jeff with Hallelujah, God they were both so genuinely emotional.

Peanut man is fucking genius. but I dont think I've ever seen you appreciate vocals which are slightly unconventional in a song, so Im not totally surprised.

Phantasmagoria in dream letter>Valentine Melody by a country mile.

Only in Patton's case usually. :lol:
Also, I just don't care much for Tim's more 'experimental' vocal approaches. Like Monterey for example. All that weird yodeling stuff and noise-making stuff....not my thing.
But when he's just singing normal ballads and such, he's among the best ever.

Those are my two favorites from him, so yeah.

I quite enjoy the textures and squeals that emerge from Tim Buckley, it adds such a rich canvas of musical colours to his songs. Soooometimes it goes a wee bit far, but overall I appreciate his raw, uncensored, wild approach to expressing his voice. Especially in songs like Jungle Fire, Gypsy Woman, SOng to the Siren...

So what's the best Tim album to get?
I'm thinking Lorca, but I seem to love his folk stuff and his 'experimental' stuff equally.

The best Tim album to get is Dream Letter , and its not even close. Studio wise, Goodbye and Hello and Happy Sad gives the perfect blend of both worlds. everything upto starsailor is pure gold, and i also like the last 3 albums, though as mentioned, i am biased, and can say they are not as consistent and he falls slightly short with his ideas.

and Nina - precisely :mrgreen:

oh absolutely. As mentioned, Tim is one of my absolute favorite artists, and I like literally anything and everything hes ever released. Just mentioned my own faves, and obviously what I believe are his best.

Okay, so things like Starsailor and Monterey don't really do it for me. I know he was trying to be different and experimental, but to me stuff like that doesn't hold a candle to his more "normal" performances (for want of a better term).

Now, performances like Phantasmagoria In Two (especially live), Once I Was, Pleasant Street, Valentine Melody, etc.....when he sings like THAT, there's just nobody better.
